heating systems. The shunts help limit the supply
line temperature to the underfloor heating system
when coupled to a 80/60 °C or 55/45 °C system, for
example.
Uponor Push 15A has been equipped with a balancing
valve that can be used to adjust the pressure drop in the
secondary circuit relative to that of the primary circuit.
Note! Always carefully check the pressure rating of the
primary circuit.
The circulation pump in the secondary circuit is automati-
cally controlled by the differential pressure. The speed of
the pump is controlled to match the actual conditions in
the underfloor heating system. This means that there is,
in general, no need for a by-pass in the secondary circuit.
Uponor Push 15A has the capacity to supply a se-
condary circuit of up to 95 m² with a heat demand of
50 W/m². The corresponding figure for Uponor Push
15A Electronic is 130 m² with the same requirements

(Wirsbo pePEX Q&E pipes 20x2.0 mm, c/c 300 mm, 9
loops with a maximum loop length of 90 m).
The distance between the secondary connections is
adjusted to allow the shunt group to be connected
direct to an underfloor heating manifold. To enable the
shunt group to be fitted in an inverted position, there is
an alternative point for the thermometer on the back of
the supply pipe.
Integrated balancing valve
Uponor Push 15A and Uponor Push 15A Electronic have
been equipped with an integrated balancing valve and
return flow inhibitor, located in the by-pass between
primary return and primary supply. By setting the valve
to a suitable value it is possible to control how much of
the return flow from the underfloor heating loops goes
back to the secondary circuit and primary circuit. Thanks
to this it is possible to employ the shunt group even in
small-scale systems without a primary pump.

Uponor Push 15A
Basic design, with a constant supply line temperature,
this temperature is governed by an automatic thermo-
stat with a sensor fitted after the circulation pump. The
thermostat is continuously variable within the range
20–55 °C.
Uponor Push 15A Electronic
Uponor Push 15A can also be supplied with an elec-
tronic automatic control system, Uponor ECL Comfort Uponor Push 15A with Uponor WGF 1” manifold and Uponor CoSy

100, for an outdoor-temperature-compensated supply
line temperature. The automatic control unit is supplied
complete with outdoor and supply line sensors as well
as a thermomotor for controlling the supply line tempe-
rature. The electronic automatic control system controls
the supply line temperature relative to the outdoor
temperature.
If the automatic control unit controls an individual
room, e.g. meeting room, workshop or storeroom, the
unit can be supplemented by equipment for controlling
the room temperature. This will then replace room ther-
mostats and actuators. The equipment can be a sensor
(item no. 882152) for maximum limit for room tempera-
ture or a room panel for overriding an automatic control
unit. Room panels are not part of Uponor Wirsbo AB’s
standard range, but a quote can be provided on request.
